Trick or Treat 2020

When: Back to Calendar October 31, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The tradition of Trick or Treat will be observed in Chartiers Township on Saturday, October 31st from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

 

The Township is leaving it up to residents to decide whether to participate or not. This is not a mandatory event and families should make the best decision for their own family.

 

Residents are advised to turn ON your porch light IF you wish to participate.

 

If you do not wish to participate: turn OFF your porch light.

 

Parents, only visit homes with a their porch light on. Please be respectful for those who have chosen not to participate as they may be vulnerable or they may be ill and are refraining from participating to protect YOU.

 

Here are a few tips to help navigate through the evening amidst the COVID pandemic:

 

  • IF YOU ARE SICK or experiencing COVID symptoms, PLEASE STAY HOME and refrain from Trick or Treating or passing out candy.

 

  • Do not leave candy in a bowl for kids to take. It’s best to designate one person to hand out candy, instead of having many children reach into a candy bowl.

 

  • Pass out treats outside. It’s recommended to position oneself outside to pass out treats, instead of having children ring doorbells and enter your home. Find a spot at the end of your driveway or yard.

 

  • Treats should be individually wrapped. To avoid any cross-contamination, please consider only individually wrapped treats

 

  • Face masks should be worn. It is recommended that both those passing out candy and those Trick or Treating wear masks while doing so. (If there's one holiday where masks are accepted, it's Halloween!!)

 

  • Avoid traveling in large groups and maintain social distancing. Be patient when others are collecting their treats and then proceed.

 

  • Utilize hand sanitizer throughout the evening. Carry it with you and have it handy.

 

  • To sanitize treats or not. It is not recommended to sanitize packaging and groceries. The transmission of the coronavirus on these types of surfaces is low. But, if parents want to sanitize the packages, they should.

 

  • Anxious parents should not participate. It’s best to buy your own Halloween treats and give to your kids – instead of being anxious about participation.

 

  • Ideally, Trick or Treat in your own neighborhoods. We know the candy hunt is a quest, but consider sticking close to home this year.

 

  • Items to bring during treat gathering. Bring hand sanitizer and require kids to wear masks. Also, don’t forget flashlights, glow sticks, or any reflective material on clothing.

 

  • PLEASE, be safe, be respectful and have fun!
